Lorrie finishing her first loop of the trail.
Lorrie - still fresh after one loop done.
Lots of water needed when running in the heat.
El Presidente !
Getting ready for my first loop.
Love my DirtyGirlZ - highly recommended!
Not enough room on the sign to add runners, cyclists, hikers, and dog walkers?
Lorrie - rockin' the flats - the "easy" part of the trail.
Dave - nice easy warmup - kind of a fake running pose to keep the camera in focus.
Hey, there's pincherries along this trail. Just wait a minute!
Lorrie - about to turn left to head up to Skunk Hollow - the first challenging slope.
Dave - descending from Skunk Hollow.
Lorrie - stopping for a quick pose before heading up the trail to the left - the second challenging slope named Cottontail Corner. (notice the animal theme?)
Lorrie - blazing along "Peter's traverse" - a long rolly stretch between slopes.
Dave - starting the climb up "Gopher's Gain" - the third challenging slope. (gotta have a Rider reference, it is Saskatchewan after all!)
Dave - very quick cadence will get you up and over.
Dave - point the toes down, & let those arms out - then let 'er rip down the hill.
Dave - skipping down the hill works too (esp. the ski hill). Very light, quick feet.
View from the trailhead.
Chokecherries - very bitter, but edible. They make good wine, and jam.
Looking up at the ski hill from the trailhead.
Lorrie - Self portrait.
Lorrie - just keep shooting - mebbe one of 'em will turn out.
Ah, a cold drink after running on a hot day - priceless . . .
